Have you ever counted how many times a day you log in to various websites? I am sure your answer would be ‘No’. We perform ‘Log In’ so many times in a day that we now don’t think how it’s done….until and unless something is wrong! You may forget your log in credential: username (it can be your email address or any other name) and password. Or there are chances that you forget if ever you have signed up for a particular web form.
To beat everything, users who fail logging in successfully to a particular website do not see its personalized content and other services, which minimize the engagement value. Looking at the significance of ‘Log-In’ form of business, some website owners have started looking out for new design solutions.
Walking on water and designing web from a specification are easy if both are frozen and as said by Johanna Drucker, “I don’t think that design needs theory, but I think designers need theory”.

Also, it’s an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up. Alike a good art inspires and good design motivates, you can achieve the perfect design only when you use appropriate tools.
WordPress is the most powerful CMS framework available at the moment. It can be used to create highly flexible and extendable websites with very little work.
